Loungewear might have become a byword for lockdown living and the butt of many a Zoom-outfit joke, but while we’re all still (relatively) confined to our homes, it’s still a great time to invest in sumptuous staples for maximum at-home comfort.
Boosting comfort and self-care are essential for our well-being and mental health, and never more so than while we are isolating from friends and family. Organising catchups and virtual events can help, as can starting a new hobby or cooking fancy cuisine. But why not upgrade your at-home wardrobe to with some of the coolest and comfiest loungewear around?
Now that last years’ tired old track pants are looking a little more than threadbare, its time to give your lockdown look a little love. Whether you’re a loungewear pro or just defining your comfy style, our definitive list of the comfiest loungewear has you covered – literally.
Comfort begins with the items of loungewear you wear closest to your skin. Underwear, therefore, should be the building block for your lockdown look. Matching underwear sets in soft, breathable fabrics are a good place to start.
Avoid the hassle of underwire when you are at home and invest in a bralette set. The comfort and security of a bralette make them perfect for relaxing at home, while still keeping things glam.
T-shirt or vest top
T-shirts and vests are probably a staple loungewear piece for you now, so why not upgrade them before the warm weather hits? Search for sustainable options in 100% organic cotton that hang straight and loose. These will allow you a greater degree of customisation when you style them.
Sleeveless t-shirts and cropped iterations also work well for getting your spring/summer loungewear look on point.
No item of clothing quite screams comfort like a sumptuously soft pair of cashmere or angora wool, wide-legged lounge pants. The wool versions make for effortlessly chic looks when paired with matching rollneck or oversized sweaters.
As we approach the warmer months, why not try linen iterations. Soft, 100% flax linen lounge pants offer an exceptional amount of breathability during summer. Keeping you cool, calm and decidedly chic.
The ubiquitous hoodie will never be out of style when it comes to comfy loungewear, but it might just be time to step away from that tired zip-up from several years ago. Pullover hoodies in luxurious wool or sustainable cotton will up the sartorial stakes when it come to your loungewear look.
Strictly speaking, yoga pants would fall into the activewear category of clothing, as they are designed for working out. Nevertheless, the skin-tight, stretchy, bum-sculpting appeal of yoga pants make them a fantastic option to add to your loungewear repertoire.
Yoga pants team perfectly with matching sports bras or bralettes and hoodies for the ultimate in easy loungewear living. Plus, if you do fancy working out, you will already be prepared. (No judgement if you do just want to hang out in them.)
